Bangkok
The capital of Thailand, this sprawling metropolis consists of shining Buddhist temples, intense culture, endless street vendors and markets, lush parks and opportunities to enjoy inexpensive, excellent Thai food everywhere you look. Mix in some mind-boggling traffic, a modern business district, hip cafes, peaceful canals and nightlife that never seems to end and the result is a city whose complexity and energy has attracted remote workers for years. You can find it all in Bangkok and you're never far away from other great destinations in Thailand and Southeast Asia as well.
